Food & presentation 3.5/5
I've never had a bad meal at Hanami and tonight was no exception. Food is always fresh and tasty. If you are obsessed with Japanese salad dressing then I recommend their Hanami special salad with their secret recipe salad dressing. Their beef tataki is also pretty good albeit the tataki being drenched in sauce, the beef sliced a little thick for tataki and a bit too much vinegar but overall it's good. Lastly, a comment about their sushi, it is always freshly prepared but the size of the sushi is humongous. Not the best Japanese food in town but good for a non-fine dining restaurant.

Like most Asian style restaurants they are understaffed - always very busy but not enough staff to serve. Tea refills or getting a waitress to serve you after you've placed your order is quite a mission. However, when you do finally get a waitress they are always friendly and keen to help.
Simple with a Japanese touch, however the table arrangement is not ideal and their chairs are not exactly comfortable. Generally quite noisy and crowded.
Value for money 3.5/5
Not the cheapest Japanese food around but servings are decent in size for the price at a restaurant of this calibre.
